11:00 pm
on larry king now we exercise our bodies one of our brains doing the right things diet exercise supplements mental exercise we have been able to demonstrate you could make it better you are not stuck with the brain if you have if people do nothing else after this broadcast i hope they will start getting some kind of a robot condition every day and it actually gets your body to produce something called u d n f which gets your brain cells to sprout branches and they actually talk to each other better plus but what we're really excited about is meditation fooled us we thought meditation would actually lower brain function it doesn't it activates most human thoughtful part of the brain which is the prefrontal cortex is all next on larry king now.
11:01 pm
welcome to larry king now this will be an extraordinary session our subject is brain fitness that has with them a buzzword and a burgeoning industry that is not just about brain games we're going to talk about the roles nutrition stress and exercise have on the health of all brains and what fit gray matter will do for you down the line joining us to discuss the topic dr daniel amen the physician psychiatrist best selling author and were in the world's foremost experts on brain imaging his latest book is the daniel plan about a fifty two week program to get the world healthy through logis organizations dr gary small is a professor of psychiatry and director of the c.l.a. longevity center and the co-author of the all zymurgy prevention program keep your brain health leave for the rest of your lie. if the subtitle scientific american
11:02 pm
magazine named dr small one of the world's leading innovators in science and technology and with us via skype from boston is our offer in hand as he's c.e.o. of sharp brands it's a market research firm that tragedy health and wellness applications of brain science and he's co-author of the shop brain's guide to brain fitness how to optimize brain health and performance at any age alvarado was named a young global leader by the world economic forum will start with you over a what is brain fitness to redefine your brain with michael morrison we think of it so brain penis is hurting big only be even most do not exist would be functions required to thrive in today's society so it's hard to not get your own working memory a more deliberate reason i'm because you hear me so the core i believe that we need to be how to be people i'm happy workers you said that we know the brain is more
11:03 pm
flexible and more plastic than ever we thought possible what is what is that plastic man. it means we have. weapons you know we are going to is going to prove these drugs are on time soon or rein in we are is not really not going to be in the right direction gave me your quote is saying that you are not stuck with the brain you have that you can make it better how do you make the brain better well we're really excited so at the m. and clinics we actually look at your brain we've done a almost ninety thousand brain scans and what we get really excited is if you've had a traumatic brain injury or you've had a stroke or. a toxic exposure doing the right thing diet exercise supplements mental exercise we have been able to demonstrate you can make it better you are not stuck with the brain you have but you want to have
11:04 pm
a sense of urgency because as dr small knows alzheimer's disease actually starts in your brain years before you have any symptoms what role the genes play. the brain they do but not as many as most people think so it's about thirty percent of your illnesses are related to your genes but more is related to your behavior you have more power than most people ever thought possible just lawdy exercise the brain people do it every day by playing sudoku puzzles crossword puzzles or you can do it online we've studied people searching online for the first time and find that it can become a tremendous brain exercise one of the challenges we have is that we're exercising our brains willy nilly we're not doing focused exercise and it's important to focus because there are memory training programs that we've developed at u.c.l.a.
11:05 pm
that we put forward in our books that actually help people improve their memory right away and you can have sustained effect. yes for many years we don't think of it in the terms of physical exercise plays a role in the brain that's probably the most important thing you can do if people do nothing else after this broadcast i hope they will start getting some kind of a robot conditioning every day and they don't have to become triathletes to be twenty thirty minutes of brisk exercise it gets your heart to pump oxygen and nutrients to your brain cells and it actually gets your body to produce something called b.d.n.f. brain derived neurotrophic factor which gets your brain cells to sprout branches and they actually talk to each other better so it doesn't take much so if you walk a mile a day they compared people just a mile a day they had more gray matter in their breath so exercise in many ways is the fountain of youth for an end as is all of this new of this discoveries about the
11:06 pm
brain are we learning new things all the time not one of these you got the really new both how it was the vote and these things are easily just a dream now he's proven he's mostly well i'm sequence pretty guidelines and i could fully agree with one of the what demir on the gory where talking about the importance of i robot exercise and important to some of the right types of mean no exercise i mean many highly hears from everybody important that a few people don't understand is not going to be one more good robust will or one more so those who would not there's is nobody beat the real effort has to be outside our comfort level until i repeat you don't want these exercise i want brings benefit not you know one more group of us you know or the big fear and all of us should agree that damon is dimension right now question we know all zombies old dementia people wouldn't think about this problem well i saw fear when i
11:07 pm
lecture from say who wants to live to eighty five or beyond and most people raise their hand fifty percent. people will be diagnosed with alzheimer's or another form of dementia by the time they're eighty five this is really an important scary issue and does gary and i were talking about before as your weight goes up the size and function of your brain goes down and with two thirds of us overweight one third of us obese it significantly increases the risk of dementia we need to get serious about getting healthy which is what we did at saddleback church with the daniel plan we actually sign the church up it's a huge church. health and pastor one called me because i've climbed the term the dinosaur syndrome based on this research as your weight goes up the size of your brain goes down so dinosaur big body little brains i know rick he's overweight that he has but he's lost sixty pounds and he got hooked because he didn't want to be
11:08 pm
a dinosaur overall start with you what do you think of lumosity this is a growing in that i hear that commercials all the time they use brain exercises. where the converter do what we need to be not even to not be eased to do one more good records will only one more sudoku for people who already have done a million a gram you want to be going to bring more nobody more of our ideal in talent going to be good for people by we have to understand the expectations on don't believe god bring games i'm going to cue or treat on timers so you have to be only more holistic instead of you know we were discussing to small is it true that some video games can increase intelligence there have been some recent studies showing that you can train a form of memory called working memory where you hold information in mind just long enough to use it so if you call directory assistance you get a phone number you dial that number that's working memory you won't remember that number in ten minutes well you can train that kind of working memory and it turns
11:09 pm
out that effect transfers to what we call fluid intelligence a person's ability. to solve problems and to reason in a complex manner and that effect is seen not just in young kids but in people who are middle aged and older people as well can you stay vol folsom was dr heymann i mean if you got it you got it right well no there will be factors. so if you want to prevent alzheimer's disease you want to prevent all the risk factors that are associated one of you knows with the early stage then the i think in our experience and we have before and after scans to demonstrate you can slow the progression the probably thousand years is most people never get a functional imaging study and so other things can cause outs can cause severe memory problems whether there's too much pressure in the brain depression can look
11:10 pm
like a masquerade it it's just really important i think that's what we do and i am in clinics as we look at your brain and i think way too many people are diagnosed with alzheimer's disease when it may in fact be something else that could be treated to small this is scan of someone's brain before and have to searching the internet we're going to put this up on the monitor tell us what we saw here through this so this was a study we did a few years ago where we had two groups of older people one group had never searched online those of the net or internet naive in the other group had internet experience the internet savvy and you can see in the upper left hand corner those blue areas in the net naive and of individuals that shows you what their brains look like when they were reading a book page when those people searched online for the first time if you just shift over you can see in red it's the same pattern and the internet savvy people the same pattern when they read the book page but when the internet savvy people searched online look at the activity more than two fold increase in activity and
11:11 pm
actually when we took those internet naive people we had them search online for just an hour a day. if for a week we saw highly significant increases in activity so you can train the brain even an older brain to search online and actually stimulate those neural circuits what does nutrition play in brain health your tradition is here you are what you eat and you think what you eat and as dr ayman mentioned we have an epidemic of obesity and overweight so we have to help people manage their weight better we have to get them to eat more omega three fats from fish nuts and flaxseed less omega six from red meats and milk products we've got to emphasize those antioxidant fruits and vegetables which protects your brain from oxidative stress associated with aging hard to imagine what food has to do with the brain for your brain uses twenty five percent of the calories you consume and food is either medicine or
11:12 pm
it's poison so if you're eating a high sugar high simple carbohydrate diet that is pro-inflammatory and inflammation is one of the major causes we think of alzheimer's disease and depression so diet are best testimonials that amun clinic's actually comes when we get people to eat right these have been tight as as brain foods fact or fiction blueberries blueberry great brain food very high and have taliban exclude barriers non-organic blueberries hold more pesticides in almost any for other way that different and as you support the idea of food in the brain surely new trees yours superman's that we are going to equal our knowledge to permit what anymore is going to go down not nutrition or not your whole is extremely important salmon salmon great brain food especially wild salmon rich and omega three fats of a coddles gods butter. it's great to spot a blue green algae blue green anything that is blue green anything that is colorful
11:13 pm
is going to be good for your brain common ground another very potent antibiotics. it has polythene o's we're actually testing pomegranate juice and pomegranate extract we think it helps the brain any supplements you recommend you know i recommend everybody take a multiple vitamin and fish oil and then get their vitamin d. level checked low levels of vitamin d. brand new study out just yesterday associated with brain atrophy so those are the three that i like but by them as opposed to doctor friend and. the prettiest brains i've ever seen a name and clinics we've seen ninety thousand of them taking co different ed as you want to counter that when we see it already did have endured like fisi got an exercise maybe based on working memory training how to regulate your stress we see more clear evidence done do you go below one good reason what effect on these was reported by your huge eight study buddies to person can wear jeans beaters so the
11:14 pm
results we would all love to see when we have even want to break the tie well you know i think i'm in the middle somewhere you know we actually did a positive ginko study but there is a medication that works one of the issues is timing because a medicine might be helpful say in moderate to severe all timers for a temporary period but doesn't seem to work in mild stages or in a pretty symptomatic stage coming up the case for meditation why the ancient technique may play a role in modern brain health that's not. force. additional mind.
11:15 pm
i married join me. in our home and family for terri and much. only on been passed and. i've been calling oliver oh fernandez a doctor he's not a doctor but i want him to be a doctor and i run the show and i'm the king and you are the oliver over now and as and. we're getting very very small and daniel in our guess would discussing the brain what is stress and definite negatives that stress is the enemy of memory and many brain functions we know that chronic stress in animals will actually shrink
11:16 pm
the hippocampal memory centers if if you take a human volunteer a new object that volunteer with the stress hormone cortisol it temporarily wipes out learning and recall now that the key word is temporary because we can help people lower their stress levels and some of the studies we've done at u.c.l.a. we found remarkable changes in neural circuitry as a result of simple things like meditation doing tai chee and even breathing that is does cause depression or depression cause stress well can go both ways a little stress is good you actually need in fact the don't worry be happy people die the earliest from accidents or preventable illnesses so i thought my job as a psychiatrist was to lower everybody's stress and then you know after about twenty years i realized what i really need to do is raise some anxiety so people make the right decisions but what we're really excited about is meditation fooled us we
11:17 pm
thought meditation would actually lower brain function it doesn't it activates the most human thoughtful part of the bra. and which is the prefrontal cortex oh yeah i mean we see remarkable increases in neural activity as a result of meditation you only have to do it six ten minutes a day and you see those changes over oh do you agree with that your own little. progress but here's how many days are we are going to do is get him and we go mystic river movement leggy yoga it's not for me to say one of the challenges we see in our studies with meditation a lot of westerners don't like to meditate they get antsy they don't like to sit around and they prefer something more active like tie chee which is sort of a meditative movement but it has a physical element to it the brain is much more actively involved in all phases of health than we think right you know what if mental health was really brain health when your brain works right you work right and i think that's one of the things
11:18 pm
psychiatry is done a really bad job of. ties in that what our image and work has really shown us is that bipolar disorder aby the autism or physical brain problems and when you optimize brain function they do better we're going to put some scans up in the monitor and daman own should tell me about these scans is this healthy or unhealthy breynton so this is actually the scan of a twenty two year old mixed martial artist so someone who came to the clinic he had been in many fights but depressed temperamental suicidal his memory was not good and which see the image on the left is spect scan a study we do and the holes indicate areas of severe low blood flow to his brain we're talking about supplements in the last segment on multiple vitamin c. fish oil and a brain boost that included ginko and some other things two and a half hours later we saw overall increased blood flow to brain and his cognitive
11:19 pm
scores were better now if he's going to get continue to get kicked. in the head if the supplements aren't fix and all these football players and all the source can you will cover from that absolutely we need to study so we've done the world's largest study on active and retired n.f.l. players we've put sixty five of them on a brain smart program eighty percent of them showed improvement not only in blood flow but also in cognitive function we're really excited about the idea of rehabilitating brain trauma of roy you recommend a holistic approach to brain health where years and no meaning yes holistic might also be nice to eat personalized so that they be either well because there's too many options too many things that we can do so is important for that person to know what these might grow and what these my priority i'm numb all of the oak's years and it will get and we had more and more options to find it one dot com be more
11:20 pm
relevant and more important i'm definitely we believe we have made good on bigger affairs memes down here people identifying what bees they're more important priority try to be a little encouraging here are we making advances in dimension all science we are i mean it's slow i mean we've made tremendous advances in brain imaging and biomarkers i mean today we can actually see the physical evidence of all timers disease in living people we never saw that before so we could detect the problem earlier we've got some new treatment trials so there have been new drugs developed to try to clear out from the brain some of the abnormal amyloid plaques and other things you have any thoughts as to what causes it well there are certainly a lot of theories and in some situations we know the cause of very rarely there's a genetic mutation that causes the disease but more often than not it's a combination of genetic factors and lifestyle factors that contribute to the disease and i think that can empower us because we're beginning to learn about
11:21 pm
modifiable risk factors that are under our control recent study from u.c. san francisco. native that fifty percent of all time are cases worldwide could be attributable to these modifiable risk factors however only other thing will seem brain health advances much in say cardiovascular health as advanced young is going to take ten twenty years to prate to cut up with a huge progress in current u.s. growth health but that is the current frontier and where we see how hundreds are signed here's what why they're working on many many be friend approaches to make you want progress let me just mention one very important thing which is that maybe cajun is always going to be part of the solution but that's a trend we see more and more clear than noninvasive options i don't want to be asked important if not more maybe gaze on so we need to start working with doctors on health care professionals on patient groups so they don't wait for being my geek
11:22 pm
be all for they might pick mitigation by the appreciate noninvasive options understand doing them today you see the day when people will exercise their brains as often as their bodies of course and events on people already are doing that today we see a lot of interest i'm on active baby boomers and also among parents whose kids have learning difficulties like eighty h.d. so it's already happening if we just go revelant and mainstream what isn't e.g. helmet it's a helmet we have that has some sensors that mr e.g. activity m p now the technology was very spends it and you had to go to a doctor or a university now is becoming consumer friendly so some of these helmets are becoming two hundred three hundred dollars so it won't be very interesting to see how people use it or misuse it damon dollars it's a size attrition stress management does all of that change the structure of the
11:23 pm
brain yes we think over time i mean the study we do is a functional study but we've actually seen research where if you're. prove the blood flow to the brain ultimately are also going to improve the gray matter and the structure it's very exciting but you can't just you know so many people you can just do crossword puzzles that's like going to the gym and doing a right bicep curl and then leaving you want to think about exercising your whole branch and my favorite exercise besides table tennis because it's exercise coordination exercise while you're thinking is dancing learning new dance steps works an interesting part of the brain called the cerebellum which is totally connected to the judgment front part of your book we have some video questions for you from some young viewers about technology in our brains the first is elise singleman a senior at the university of southern california. activities ok now research and testing right i mean what does that do to our ability to concentrate and. so
11:24 pm
this is a challenge because what happens is that young people and even older people are multitasking they're using their devices they're not focusing attention they're actually pain partial continuous attention because they're waiting for the next being in buzz from their device so they are developing a form of attention deficit there's even been some discussion maybe we're becoming a more autistic society we're not connecting face to face so we have some concerns on now on the other side of it there actually has been a recent study where a certain video game was used where they found that older people could increase their multitasking ability by playing this video game in fact the eighty year olds were able to multitask to the degree that an untrained twenty year old could actually study sponsored by hewlett packard the people who sort of get addicted to their email and video game and being online lose i.q.
11:25 pm
points over a year so i think brakes are good idea because they did you can become addicted to it where you're always is very. as saying waiting for that next buzz to happen we have some social media questions that still more ahead on twitter wants to know what happens to the frontal lobe during adolescence start to smaller you know the frontal lobe is actually developing during adolescence from birth through out the lessons there's a process called pruning where in sixty percent of the neural connections are pruned away so the idea of use it or lose it is probably more important when we're young then when we're older bryson now it's facebook. do we store all the information we see in our minds now in fact our minds sort of filter things out so that we are only paying attention to what we think is the most important thing so two people can look at exactly the same event and come away with different ideas on what happened amanda mensa ensiferum i've had anxiety for eighteen years now
11:26 pm
been on every sort of medication it either stops working or doesn't work at all is ever going to be a test to tell which bed is the right for which person well that's why we do imaging i mean psych how would you ever know what's going on in an anxious person's brain unless you actually look so functional imaging is going to be a huge part of the future of psychiatry so you're not thrown darts in the dark if people are we learning more over time where's it going brain fitness so there is this one point i wanted to make we did break people it is not really the absence of us numbers so when we see a way people don't dream repeat most eagerly want to maximize their performance today on the lead. might we see many boomers want to do baby missed tuesday productive do we want to have as long as career you have larry to be able to drive safely on to how great congress these are we going to barnard their friends tended
11:27 pm
to trainees repeat myth is i want to go back to the functionary bit on how to delete a disease. those are hard we see the young at fitness centers and exercising is it hard to get them interested when you're twenty five years old in the brain you know it is and actually we just did a study with the gallup poll organization and we found that young people did have memory complaints about fourteen percent of them really and we also found that the older you get the more likely you are to live a healthy lifestyle the older you get through it and it's probably one of the reasons may be that if you don't live a healthy lifestyle you're not going to live to old age and also when you get older you you notice the negative impact of smoking and being overweight and drinking too much do we learning more about the criminal brain you know the criminal brain is a sociopathic brain these are people that have no sense of guilt the lie all the time how do we explain you know i think part of it is the genetic and
11:28 pm
a part of it is going to be environmental many times sociopaths you just can't cure them so we published the study with ninety murderers and what we found significantly lower frontal lobe function and other researchers have found the same thing i mean this is just such an important the front part of such an important part for empathy learning from the mistakes you may focus salo through we're going to do a lot more on this thank you all very much overall i made you adopt you are now no longer about. thanks to my guests dr daniel amen dr gary small and our old fernandez for more information on our panelists and to learn more about how to optimize your brain check out our blog at kings things dot or a dot tv remember you can find me on twitter at kings things and we'll see you next time.
11:29 pm
i know c.n.n. m.s.n. b.c. and fox news have taken some knocks lately but the fact is i. they're commitment to cover all sides of the story just in case one of them happens to be accurate. that was funny but it's closer to the truth and might think. it's because one whole attention and the mainstream media work side by side the joke is actually on here. and our teenagers we have a different brain. because the news of the world just is not this funny i'm not laughing dammit i'm not how. you guys stick to the jokes well handled that.
11:30 pm
well. technology innovation all the developments around. the future are covered. hello there i'm marinating this is bust and these are the stories that we're tracking for you today. first up we're looking at how bank of america leased to borrowers who rewarded loan modifications and what one couple in montana is doing about it they aren't thinking it likely then net neutrality is a term that didn't even exist ten years ago but today we can't seem to stop talking about it julie samuels executive director of the engine research foundation is on the program today and is giving us the take on the importance of that rally and at the end of the week which means it's
11:31 pm
a viewer feedback day here on broome but edward harris and i are addressing your question sounds concerns a lot of on the show you will want to miss a moment and all starts right now. with. our lead story today bank of america and fraud now first off let's just go what exactly fraud is now h a m p is actually an acronym for home affordable modification program it's a federal program in the u.s. which was set up to help eligible homeowners with a loan modification on their home mortgages it was set up following the two thousand and eight financial crisis in the context of the ongoing subprime mortgage crisis now the goal of the program is to help struggling homeowners who are at risk
11:32 pm
of foreclosure. i working with their lenders to lower monthly mortgage payments so how does the of america fit into all this what bank of america's mortgage servicing unit systemically lied to homeowners fraudulent we did not loan modifications and paid their staff bonuses yeah bonuses for deliberately pushing people into foreclosure so how did they do all this and get away with it well the government's hand program gave banks cash incentives to modify loans under certain standards and that was supposed to streamline the process but in reality bank of america used it as a tool to squeeze as much money as possible out of struggling borrowers before eventually foreclosing on them not cool now according to bank of america whistleblowers borrowers were supposed to make three trial payments before the loan modification became permanent in actuality many borrowers would make payments for over a year only to find themselves rejected for a permanent modification and then knowing the difference between the trial
11:33 pm
modification and their original payment the bank did this by having employees instruct borrowers that documents were either incomplete or missing when they weren't even filed or were under review when they hadn't even been assessed for months criminal basically bank of america didn't want to hire enough staff to handle the loan modification requests that it was receiving they'd then use these stall tactics long enough to ultimately force homeowners out of their residence and collect on the property now if this sounds criminal that's because it is and while it might not get be a legal it is criminal and that's why we're looking into it just two weeks ago the montana supreme court ruled that a case alleging that bank of america deliberately let a couple into foreclosure could be tried now it will be the first to go to the state supreme court and thus will have huge implications for millions of homeowners in america now while not everyone is covering this story we intend to take a long and hard look at the facts for some time to come.
11:34 pm
now that neutrality is a big issue in the tech world if internet service providers can start discriminating against different types of content then content providers will have to start paying that's fine for huge companies like netflix and you tube but what about the littler guys now there's a big debate about this and take a listen to what economist david henderson has to say about it. net neutrality is a bad idea the whole idea that people who use something in greater degree should pay the same use something or less degree doesn't make sense if i go to a restaurant and i order to steaks i should order more than i should pay more than you who ordered one steak and it's the same kind of principle with net neutrality these people are just sucking up lots of bandwidth and that makes sense to charging for them so charging for service is simple capitalism for henderson but for julie
11:35 pm
samuels the executive director of the engine research foundation net neutrality is extremely important and i asked her what she thought of henderson's argument to take a look at what she had to say. so i think that we're confusing a couple things here it's one thing to say you need to pay more for more bits it's another thing to say we'll base how much you have to pay and what kind of content you are or what you're distributing so that is to say that i don't care if it's netflix is video or any other companies video quantity is different than the type so it may be netflix has to pay more for more amount of bits but they should get equal access and netflix maybe isn't the best example because they can pay for that but you know think about a startup company who's trying to get its content out its product out and they're stuck behind the line because other people can pay more money than they can that's just not the vision of the internet that i i would argue most people in this
11:36 pm
country and in this world have. ok so what do you do if you're a telco that has invested in all of this been within one or two companies are using it all without having to pay any capital investment or make an account investment and then they hide behind net neutrality laws to keep from having to make some kind of investments the same kind of investment or other or pain for the bandwidth that they use what do you think of that well so first of all people have to pay for the bandwidth they use it's just a matter and a net neutrality doesn't mean that you all get on for free it means that you can't discriminate about who can get on and you have to make prices reasonable so for instance think about telephone wires for a second you can have at the end in office you might have really fancy telephones or lots of receptionist answering the line that's ok so that means that people might have a better experience using your telephone system but everyone has equal access to those wires that's the principle behind behind this idea of a common carrier and we think that is instrumental to the idea of the internet i
11:37 pm
point out one other thing i think in response to that comment earlier when you start talking about why these telcos are you know what incentive do they have to upgrade their broadband you know they found a monopoly and i hate to sound trite but with great responsibility comes great power no one else can get in there they've got a government granted monopoly to this stuff so what do you make of the comcast time warner cable deal. frankly i think that a lot of this the problems we're facing in this space are about monopolies and that really worries me for that reason so i guess the next question do you have any concerns about the netflix gone how do you think regulators should approach that one the netflix comcast deal or no particular yes the yes the netflix comcast deal you know so so i don't i guess i'm more worried about the time warner comcast deal the eighteen ti direct t.v. deal these types of deals where the companies that all provide the pipes provide
11:38 pm
the the like. tubes if you will on which were transporting content the comcast netflix deal i'm worried about it for net neutrality reasons but less so for monopoly reasons that kind of deal i worry about because what happens when netflix get gets prioritized service when their content flows through more quickly than other stuff automatically get slowed down it just gets pushed behind them in line if you will and that's unfortunate let me let me point something out i think we talk about this stuff very abstractly and it's hard to understand but let's say you go on and you're on your computer and you pull up a radio station that you like to stream or a website that provides some content and that the website is choppy or it's not working or it's coming in slowly most people are going to go ahead and blame the website they're going to say something's broken with the website they're not going to say my i.s.p. is slowing them down right so it's very dangerous for those companies on the other side it's very interesting and pretty good analogy because i would say you know the internet and web sites broken out the spirit of writing always will do that and you
11:39 pm
know i think the other thing that people don't realize that's really important for this conversation is that in the business of web sites if you will latency really matters down to a millisecond if a web page loads even the littlest bit slower all the data show that that really hurts a company and think i mean think about it think about a payment processor for instance you pay for something with your credit card you're using pay pal right and it slows down and you get that little spinning wheel and then maybe even your transaction times out that will make you not want to use that company again richer right and odds are it's the i.s.p. who's doing that so in the i s p can pick winners or losers can grant incumbents who can afford faster access that faster access it's really bad for competition in this country it's true that penn well does not help any situation but i want to ask you has the f.c.c. acted to protect net neutrality in the past and if so how so the f.c.c. has acted in the past to protect net neutrality in two thousand and ten you know they issued this open internet order that we've been operating under. until about
11:40 pm
six months ago that basically set up a framework of net neutrality about six months ago the court a federal court in d.c. struck that down of course and this part gets a little bit in the legal leads and just bear with me for a quick second here in two thousand and ten so so right now the internet is classified we talked about this earlier is classified as an information service instead of a telecommunications service because it's an information service which is under something called section seven no six sorry this is nerdy. because it's under that search the court said seven o six you can't do what you're trying to do you can't protect net neutrality in the way you're trying to do it f.c.c. under this section of the law so we think that in order to protect net neutrality as the f.c.c. has tried to do before and according to statements coming out of the f.c.c. they apparently want to do again the legal authority only exists if they re classify it as a telecommunications service they. want to protect net neutrality but we think
11:41 pm
there really is only one legal route to get there according to what this court said come now i want to ask you why is this debate just so contentious and isn't there some sort of third way that we might be able to satisfy a network neutrality with out having all this blowback so i think it's so contentious i think it's actually a really great and important question i think it's so contentious because it really people really understand the internet they care about the internet people rely on the internet every day and not just for transactions but for basic human communication right and i think that that it really touches a nerve with people when they feel like their internet is being messed with and i think that's really important and i think you'll continue to see that throughout this debate as to your question about whether there's a third way i think there are alternative options that will help i think we can avoid this net neutrality debate we you know we're stuck with that one and we have to see it through but there are other things that can help i talked
11:42 pm
a little bit earlier. about other ways to increase access to the internet and laying fiber having municipalities you know cities and towns lay fiber so that there are other ways to get on line so you're creating competition in the marketplace same thing with wireless giving more access in the wireless spectrum so let me just talking a little bit wonky again so let me take a quick step back most places in america you've got probably one choice to get on line in your house and it's probably comcast eighteen t. or verizon in some cities you might be lucky to have a second choice but that's incredibly rare across the country so these other things i'm talking about create that kind of competition so people can pick their own way to get on mine. that was julie samuels executive director of the engine research foundation. time now for a very quick break but stick around because one we return we're bringing you the best of the very best from this past week plus edward harrison and i are tackling
11:43 pm
your viewer feedback in our weekly accrued interest segment but before we go here are a look at some of your clothes the numbers of the bell stick around. and
11:44 pm
a society. where for ration mind you can. do and the bag and all that all about money and i was actually sick for a politician right the last right. here just to let. the days i eat. that. welcome back now it's the end of the week and that means it's time for our best of the best segment now we covered a lot of ground this week and let's start off with mr paul craig roberts now he argues that the powerful have more of a say in how our economy and our political system work and
11:45 pm
a lot of people would agree with him then we have eve smith who blasts private equity claims of job creation saying that it's a very dubious claim in her view and i gotta agree with her now doug casey he talks about government inefficiency but wait till you hear how much inefficiency he sees a mere soofi argues that we need to forget about banks instead we should write down some of the debt for underwater households in order to help the economy in the long run and chris martenson discusses the risks that still exist in the financial market post crisis and what he thinks we should do about it but but we start off this way it's the best of the best with mr peter schiff the one and only now he discusses why he now uses big paper transactions in decline you remember that he was not for big corn and probably still isn't now the interesting bit is that he says that he doesn't really want the big point at all but what he actually wants of the dollars because he says dollars have a certain value and inside the us dollars are legal tender dollars are what his employees need to pay their bills and what he needs to pay the rent not to mention
11:46 pm
dollars are what he needs to expunge his us tax liability check it out. i want to make it easier for people who own big coins to take something off the table and to turn some of their digital currency into real money gold solar and by you know partnering up with with big pay it makes it very easy because the people in bitcoins can use their bitcoins to pay but i don't get the big quotes i get dollars i see really accepting bitcoins pay is accepting big points and they're turning around and giving me dollars so my customers gets a pay with bitcoin but i get dollars which of course is what i need because i got to pay my rent i got to pay my salaries i got to pay all my other expenses on my taxes so i need dollars when i'm running a business in the united states i don't need because. the powerful groups are the ones with the money and the ability to ally themselves with us foreign policy for
11:47 pm
example wall street is a great looting mechanism. the military security company. agribusiness monsanto all of those people the oil timber and mining the extractive industries and of course the israel lobby itself these are the powerful interest groups that essentially determine the domestic and foreign economic policy and the two scholars that you named they made the point in a very strongly that. community interest groups and citizens have zero him put it into the formation of policy. this is been confirmed by in other ways aaron recently the test was made to two letters and sent out to congressional offices and one asked for a meeting with representatives with some was with
11:48 pm
a collection of donors and the other asked for a meeting with a collection of community representatives well the first lot i got the responses they were all willing to meet with donors but they were very interested to me where the city at community interest groups from their constituents. how many jobs do you keep arms create if any. that's such a dubious argument it's actually offensive p. companies routinely cost fire people there's a thin slice of companies middle there's a thin slice around the three hundred three hundred fifty million in transaction size and below where the p. e. funds there actually is academic data that says they do invest and they do make operating improvements because those are companies that basically weren't professionally managed to they come at the size so there is a slice where you can make this client size slice that we can make this claim with there's virtue the problem is that's not where the bulk of the money in the industry is the bulk of the money is on the high end where they come in and they do
11:49 pm
financial engineering had a very aggressive headcount cuts very aggressive supplier squeezing. first of all most of the u.s. government serves no useful purpose. most of the u.s. government is and get a handle on society and i think to start with we could abolish about ninety percent of it quite frankly including most of the military i know the average american loves the military seems like of the only part of the government that kind of works but actually the military u.s. military is not protecting us there they're actually an immense danger to us by having combat troops not under different countries all these welfare programs should be abolished the post office should be privatized now it would be it is going to be quite. possible to cut the u.s. government by ninety percent and cut their taxes by about a month and so forth but it's not going to happen because of the deep state it's
11:50 pm
totally unsuited a way to society and african-americans are not risk of income from the government so nothing's going to change until we have a genuine. catastrophic crisis. think about for a second the way a debt contract works let's think of a house so house worth one hundred thousand dollars and you have a mortgage of eighty thousand dollars against it if house prices fall twenty thousand dollars then who takes a loss well anyone with a basic finance background knows that the homeowner takes out full loss they lose all of their equity before the creditor takes even a dollar of losses the point that we're making in the book is that who exactly are debtors debtors tend to be lower net worth lower income lower credit score individuals and they have a very high propensity to spend out of negative shocks meaning when their house prices fall twenty thousand dollars they cut back spending in a very strong way and when they cut back spending in this way in essential it
11:51 pm
overwhelms the economy and that's exactly what you see in the data if you look at the shock to spending even before the financial crisis let's say august and even early september two thousand and eight it was already of an unprecedented proportion the cutback on autos the cutback on durable goods like refrigerators sewing machines these are just very dramatic pullbacks and spending and that's something that basically throws the entire economy into a tailspin so the central argument that we're making is if you have a very narrow focus and all you think about is well we have to protect banks we have to protect banks you fail to recognize that actually forgiving some of the dead while it may impose a short term loss on mortgages is. actually better in the long run for the overall economy what we don't like when we're looking across this landscape is we see everything that we would characterize as a risk or
11:52 pm
a pressure on the international financial system is now larger than it was in two thousand and eight and those pressures are things like derivatives are one hundred trillion higher the too big to fail banks are even larger sovereign debts are higher not lower we have all time highs now in consumer debt back on the on the books and what we don't have to support all of those things is that resumption of world growth which our hypothesis is we are not going to see that with oil over one hundred dollars a barrel which we think is a permanent condition so that's the pressures we see building up resources aren't there in the cheap ways and amounts we need to have the growth that can sustain all of this additional debt and leverage that we're piling back into the system and that's a scenario i can't control that you can't nobody listening to this can what you can control is how exposed you are in case that scenario doesn't work out and that's where getting out of debt helps that's where investing in your homestead growing some of your own food if possible those sorts of things if you can do those those are really good at adding resilience into your personal landscape. that was the
11:53 pm
best of the best from this time now for our weekly accrued interest. it's accrued interest time with mr edward harris and now every friday we put you the viewer into the driver's seat when you steer the show with your comments questions and concerns all sent to us throughout the week here twitter you tube and facebook let's dive right in first up we have mr zak eight eight eight who writes pretty capitalism question our question are not this merger is it capitalism there is no such thing is good or bad or crony under capitalism if it makes money then it's considered correct either through hook or by crook you had idiot libertarians defending capitalism by naming monopolies crony i'm sorry but capitalism is a moral that goal is to make money pretty happy stuff so when you think capitalism
11:54 pm
immoral maybe i don't know where it's coming from perhaps it is immoral because you know at the end of the day i think really will boils down to is that you know people do want to make money but let's put some parameters around this we have a quote here that i want to put up there is in the operation of a market economy only one instance in which the proprietary class is not completely subject to the supremacy of the consumers monopoly prices are infringement of the sway of the consumers and that's for movies for mieses who is an austrian economist i love that our free market economist who basically said that monopoly was an infringement on consumers we should have. if you think about this the question is how do companies get monopolies you know milton friedman would say in most cases it's government intervention that actually creates the monopoly in the first place they're the ones who create the preconditions for the monopoly to exist so the
11:55 pm
question is regardless of whether. you believe government has created this monopoly what do you do once that monopoly comes into play and i think what you have to do is you have to free up competition freedom would say you know have free trade but in this case what we're talking about is a huge capital investment in internet technology in order to get competition and my view is that you should definitely just have the government build you know a competing route with all of the cable companies and then let it go up for free trade to anyone who wants to call so that pipe is open for free competition and anyone who wants to use that can do so that way you can have more competition you know what i think is interesting about this we talked about this obviously before we get on television and you said you know my kneejerk reaction was like no capitalism isn't a moral it's many things and might not be moral but i don't know if it's
11:56 pm
a moral and you said it's more about market structure which i think sums up everything you just said and it's true market structure is so imperative and it's a it's something more than just a moral or immoral and it has more implications i think and put it very well now our next question comes from the halo bend or tails zero bend she says why do fools keep flocking to l.v. las vegas to lose their money clearly folks will never learn until they are destitute so add well never learn or is hello a band great. things are bubbling up in las vegas but you know what i heard a very interesting is that it's on the clothes there was something in the new york times that said it's on the coasts where you're getting prices rising so high that it's almost better to read first like las vegas and phoenix are actually at the fore front of the increase in house prices so they're going to another remark regarding the same episode comes from good ol cane i'm sorry if i butchered your
11:57 pm
handle for you to. but you write one of the best shows in a long time excellent guests and topics we want to say thank you when we really really appreciate that thank you very much mr cain talking about smith by the wood that episode that we had with her and i would agree she is one of the best guess and i like the topics as well now talking about one of our favorite guests smith that's obviously what he's talking about now we want to move on and next we have a comment from nick hill about our guest david henderson he says quote mr anderson appears not to understand the concept of net neutrality has nothing to do it has nothing to do with all you can eat ban with packages it is about i s p's deliberately downgrading performance to specific websites in order to leverage their physical monopoly of the cable industry now what do you think of the set is mr hill correct or is mr david henderson correct with thirty seconds but i want to hear what you get is that going back to or just you know you want to get rid of that little blip in there on the other side our guest earlier today was talking about yes when you see done we did service it's the ice p.
11:58 pm
who's downgrading that service and you blame the company the content provider and that card to provide a loses money they're using they're made up really to decide that it's certain that the ride is over others and that the child is all about well that's all for now but you can see also considered in today's show on you tube at youtube dot com starting we also love hearing from you subpoenas check out our facebook page at facebook dot com slash boom bust our teeth please tweet out us out any of it at edward and it's from all of us here from guys thank you for watching have a great weekend have a moral there.

12:01 am
welcome to our t.v. international live from moscow this morning you are with a top story. ukraine's observing a so called a day of silence when political campaigning ends before sunday's presidential election but there's been no reprieve before the newly proclaimed and lugansk people's republic of the country's east here were launched a military operation to bring the rest of regions back under their control over a month ago this is the latest footage coming from the area showing the aftermath of fighting five people were killed when local and government forces reportedly clashed with the paramilitary squad formed by the radical right sector group they make up a part of here full force is just a reminder the right sector was at the forefront of every screw in here and only recently became a political party in ukraine they were ization is very and for its near large the ideology it's needed to meet the reality is also running in sunday's presidential
12:02 am
election for more on the line up in the race is policy. true pushing to dubbed the chocolate king for building his wealth on sweet deals selling his candy both in ukraine and across the border in russia a predicted front runner he is a champion of european integration and seen by many as the dispersant to reform the country's failing economy. but he's viewed as an unreliable partner critics complain that his political flexibility is too slippery and that ukraine does not need another on the guard at the helm to machine code was the hero when of the two thousand and five all winter evolution known as much for her hip let as for her politics the two times explain minister was jailed in two thousand and eleven for exceeding her powers her campaign is built on the alleged abuse she suffered in detention she promises a session to the european union even if it means severing ties with moscow but it's
12:03 am
unclear if voter trust is there her political steps range from friendly gas deals with president putin on the one hand. to calling for russians to be nuked on the other in the quest. to our which leads the ultra nationalist right sick to party wary of the european union he wants to lower taxes on small businesses and break up conglomerates owned by ukraine's super rich back in february his supporters were the main fighting force in the bloodstained western supported coup and now he's one of the main backers of the military crackdown in the east. we have to squish all those behind the terrorist efforts they're mad just ask what that word you've used squash means to physically eliminate them or. only tragedy book is chairman of the right wings for botha policy and thinks ukraine should give up on russian gas and charge moscow more for gas transits he's called for the russian language to be
12:04 am
banned and believes minority rights should be limited he's also charged with being anti semitic running ukraine is arguably one of the toughest jobs in the world today even if picture pushing to emerge as the clear winner come sunday he has his work cut out for him first order of business is deciding how to deal with the regions in the east who have denounced the legitimacy of these elections they must address the country's looming economic crisis and last week is the sensitive question of what to do with these encampments here with my done in the heart of the anti-government protest that laid the groundwork in the first place for these elections. kid of ukraine that's a fair though from the incident of a near east some gulf military and the analysis of dubai based strategy and security consultancy says sunday's poll won't be a game changer for ukraine it's clear that the elections are only part of
12:05 am
a process but i think in the long term looking at ukraine that looks like the syria in the sense that you have a lot of the same phenomena occurring in syria as you do in ukraine the differences of course or the actors in terms of non-state actors and state actors who's backing the situation in ukraine is complicated them on multiple levels it's not just about east versus west it's more about multi-dimensional russia scored of the issues within ukraine by region wide city and also in terms of the situation regarding the fascist question and it unfortunately the west to the united states does not understand ukraine's history and fails also to understand russia's position on ukraine itself today i think the abomination insurgents make a tremendous mistake in supporting these groups in kiev with who have
12:06 am
fascist tendencies. meanwhile the u.s. says it would assist in the freeing true russian journalist detained by government forces in ukraine only if the credentials are confirmed by the country's interim authorities video of the live news employees being held at gunpoint has been circulating on the internet here for accuses them here of aiding self-defense forces in the east of the council of europe and human rights watch have demanded the immediate release. we'll bring you all the latest on the brain throughout the weekend on the air and online at r t v dot com. it's the final day of the an all international economic forum in st petersburg delegations from around the world and hundreds of business leaders have talked shop at russia's doubles big meetings in energy finance banking and construction are present i am.
12:07 am
i am. in the room. as russia strengthens its economic ties with china delegates at the forum agreed that it's time to stop talking politics and get down to business artie's kitty pilgrim explores the asian shift. this storm comes the same week that we have the four hundred billion dollars gas still with gas problems sealed with china and that was an air of excitement as to what the potential for asian business holds for russia but as far as russia is concerned they have an abundance of natural resources and. the dumond and that's why a lot of people why getting free optimistic about the future relationship between russia and china. i heard about twenty fifty seven chinese company or high tech companies already just to move in and replaced. by

just to name a few i mean it's amazing we're always next door clients. exploring new markets and restore the exploring a new possibilities for one or clients will soon we do lose for a few years. moving to china in a few years you know so as we know the pivot to asia is certainly in full swing the russian president vladimir putin made that adamantly. today we have the vice president of china talking about the potential for the two countries as far as europe is because there is some concern that that business relationship be put on the sidelines because of this new flourishing relationship with china but mr putin made it clear that the door to europe remains firmly and that was a welcomed sentiment by the european business leaders have. for those who don't want to participate to create opportunities for companies who do want to be here so
12:09 am

lack of resources have touched every single area in greece not just the cities leaving many and the dead and. i left the village five years ago i tried to work in the city at various companies but the quality of life there is not the same i returned and try to cultivate crops but unfortunately exploitation of lands offers very little money a young person cannot have a family and make ends meet like this. young man is lives in the village of out of money the he travels back and forth to the city trying to make a living he is one of the few left here most people you encounter are much older like e.r.v.'s most of his children have also left. village comprises seventy families which is around four hundred people half of the population left most of the people here old young people have moved to the cities or abroad in search of a better life and those who stay behind will end up looking for something better than chile the problem is that at the moment very few know where to look for that
12:18 am
something better on the one hand you have unemployment in the cities and on the other die in villages lacking resources locals have told me that the only school there is here has been closed since two thousand and eleven so we're heading there now to find out why it's been shut down and what alternatives the kids living here have as we approach i mean it's a former student who tells me that one hundred students used to go here until it's too succumbed to they can on the crisis. from the pupils you see here not one stayed in the village they went to the big cities because there's no work here and the agricultural things we cultivate don't offer enough money to keep a family here. there is a lack of money the expenses in taxes people pay here are equal to those in the city yet income is very low even the head of the village has been out of work for over a year and he doesn't believe that the situation will ever improve and. if young people do return here they will still not be able to work because cultivating the
12:19 am

watch to it in just five years time person will have run out of oil coal and gas a new report shows that if it consumes energy at the rate it did in two thousand and ten well the u.k. has five point two years of oil four and a half years of coal and just three years of gas left and that's if scotland doesn't vote to leave the union later this year taking its north sea oil with it italy has just over one year of oil and less than a year of gas and coal reserves while france which relies predominantly on nuclear energy has less than the years reserves of oil gas and coal elsewhere in the world kuwait has a stash of over seven hundred years of black gold while over a millennium norway has almost five hundred years and russia has just over a century's worth of natural gas one of the report's conclusions is that europe

needs to develop renewable energy such as wind and solar power while the energy maps come less than a month off to the u.k.'s committee or national security said that the government's energy plans were robust enough one thing that the news is likely to fuel is westminster's dash for shale gas ministers are hoping that hydraulic fracturing will lead to greater energy independence but that's not likely to placate environmentalists who claim that the process is dangerous. we spoke with the author of the report to dr lead to gerry in from the u.k. and here asking university he believes europe is headed for an energy crisis. the likelihood is gas prices in europe will increase dramatically in the short term until alternative supplies can be found and where those alternative supplies come from there's a big question about whether the infrastructure is in place to be able to supply
12:22 am
those so what we're likely to see is an increased. price of gas in europe and therefore some very serious situations around electricity generation heating and all the other things that we use gas for in europe so we will see significant impacts on all our trysting market in our heating markets. and here's a look at some other news stories from across the world america has kind of millions of dollars in military aid to island have to be on the arse of the government in a coup one hundred top politicians including the former prime minister have been detained time and is now governed by six senior army officers protests in the capital against the new rule have been dispersed. clashes in egypt have killed two people one hater of monday's presidential elections dozens were injured in violence between islamists and the opponents during a muslim brotherhood rally the country has been in turmoil since president morsi was ousted by the military last summer. and

the united states is is this is filling a very dramatically. kuantan a mo is one very crucial important instance of the failure last time the world's attention was really brought back to guantanamo was one of mass hunger strike took place last year and the world was forced to address the issue yet again and to hold us accountable for the events unraveling at guantanamo and even though the obama administration's has decided to not release any more numbers on the number of detainees currently being force fed we do know that those numbers are in at least a couple dozen people and despite the fact that officials are. calling this long term non really just fasting certainly this continues to be a major concern for human rights groups and organizations prisoners and twenty thirteen took a courageous mass action a political action of going on hunger strike this did get the attention of

washington because. they were on the verge of having more deaths on their hands moving forward these optimists are saying the plan is to continue to organize for the cause of having one ton of will be shut down but even if eventually that day does calm they say enough of the state has been already created on america's image to remain there for a decisive artsy new york. but in boston where the aaron aid is coming up next here on r.t. international but if you're watching in the u.k. it's a bit to action with time before going. to see. this month's show the line between first truth and reality becomes even more blurred and russia and america join forces to fights concept we take the shaman culture spin and i become the cool kid in the class technology some day each year

12:28 am
hello there i'm marinating this is boom bust and these are the stories that we're tracking for you today. first up we're looking at how bank of america leased to borrowers who rewarded help loan modifications and what one couple in montana is doing about it they aren't taking it lightly then net neutrality is a term that didn't even exist ten years ago but today we can't seem to stop talking about it julie samuels executive director of the engine research foundation is on the program today and is giving us the take on the importance of that rally and at the end of the week which means it's a viewer feedback day here on broome but i do worry here is that i are addressing your question sounds concerns a lot of on the show you will want to miss a moment and all starts right now.
12:29 am
with. our lead story today bank of america and fraud now first off let's just what exactly happened fraud is now h a m p is actually an acronym for home affordable modification program it's a federal program in the u.s. which was set up to help eligible homeowners with a loan modification on their home mortgages it was set up following the two thousand and eight financial crisis in the context of the ongoing subprime mortgage crisis now the goal of the program is. to help struggling homeowners who are at risk of foreclosure by working with their lenders to lower monthly mortgage payments so how does the of america fit into all this well bank of america's mortgage servicing unit systemically lied to homeowners fraudulent lee denied loan modifications and paid their staff bonuses yeah bonuses for deliberately pushing
12:30 am
people into foreclosure so how did they do all this and get away with it well the government's hand program gave banks cash incentives to modify loans under certain standards and that was supposed to streamline the process but in reality bank of america used it as a tool to squeeze as much money as possible out of struggling borrowers before eventually foreclosing on them not cool now according to bank of america whistleblowers borrowers were supposed to make three trial payments before the loan modification became permanent in actuality many borrowers would make payments for over a year only to find themselves rejected for a permanent modification and then owing the difference between the trial modification and their original payment the bank did this by having employees instruct borrowers that documents were either incomplete or missing when they weren't even filed or were under review when they hadn't even been assessed for months criminal basically bank of america didn't want to hire enough staff to handle all of the loan modification requests that it was receiving they venue's
12:31 am
these stall tactics long enough to ultimately force homeowners out of their residence and collect on the property now if this sounds criminal that's because it is and while it might not get be a legal it is criminal and that's why we're looking into it just two weeks ago the montana supreme court ruled that a case alleging that bank of america deliberately let a couple into foreclosure could be tried now it will be the first to go to the state supreme court and thus will have huge implications for millions of homeowners in america now while not everyone is covering this story we intend to take a long and hard look at the facts for some time to come. now let me draw ality is a big issue in the tech world if internet service providers can start
12:32 am
discriminating against different types of content then content providers will have to start paying that's fine for huge companies like netflix and you tube but what about the littler guys now there's a big debate about this and take a listen to what economist david henderson has to say about it. net neutrality is a bad idea the whole idea that people who use something in greater degree should pay the same use something less degree doesn't make sense if i go to a restaurant and i order to steaks i should order more than i should pay more than you who ordered one steak and it's the same kind of principle with net neutrality these people are just sucking up lots of bandwidth and that makes sense to charging for them so charging for service is simple capitalism for henderson but for julie samuels the executive director of the engine research foundation net neutrality is extremely important and i asked her what she thought of henderson's argument take a look at what you have to say. so i think that we're confusing
12:33 am
a couple things here it's one thing to say you need to pay more for more bits it's another thing to say we'll base how much you have to pay and what kind of content you are or what you're distributing so that is to say that i don't care if it's netflix is video or any other companies video quantity is different than the type so it may be netflix has to pay more for more amount of bits but they should get equal access and netflix maybe isn't the best example because they can pay for that but you know think about a startup company who's trying to get its content out its product out and they're stuck behind the line because other people can pay more money than they can that's just not the vision of the internet that i i would argue most people in this country and in this world have ok so what do you do if you're a telco that has invested in all of this been within one or two companies are using it all without having to pay any capital investment or make an account of us and then they hide behind net neutrality laws to keep from having to make some kind of
12:34 am
investments the same kind of investment or other or pain for the bandwidth that they use what do you think of that well so first of all people have to pay for the band what they use is just a matter and a net neutrality doesn't mean that you all get on for free it means that you can't discriminate about who can get on and you have to make prices reasonable so for instance think about telephone wires for a second you can have at the end in an office you might have really fancy telephones or lots of receptionist answering the line that's ok so that means that people might have a better experience using your telephone system but everyone has equal access to those wires that's the principle behind behind this idea of a common carrier and we think that is instrumental to the idea of the internet i point out one other thing i think in response to that comment earlier when you start talking about why do these telcos are you know what incentive do they have to upgrade their broadband you know they found a monopoly and i hate to sound trite but when. great responsibility comes great power no one else can get in there they've got
12:35 am
a government granted monopoly of this stuff so what do you make of the comcast time warner cable deal. frankly i think that a lot of this the problems we're facing in this space are about monopolies and that really worries me for that reason so i guess the next question do you have any concerns about the netflix gone how do you think regulators should approach that one the netflix comcast deal or no particular yes the yes the netflix comcast deal you know so so i don't i guess i'm more worried about the time warner comcast deal the eighteen to direct t.v. deal these types of deals where the companies that all provide the pipes provide the like the the tubes if you will on which were transporting content that comcast netflix deal i'm worried about it for net neutrality reasons but less so for monopoly reasons that kind of deal i worry about because what happens when netflix gets gets prioritized service when their content flows through more quickly than
12:36 am
other stuff automatically get slowed down it just gets pushed behind them in line if you will and that's unfortunate let me let me point something out i think we talk about this stuff very abstractly and it's hard to understand but let's say you go on and you're on your computer and you pull up a radio station that you like to stream or a website that provides some content and then the website is choppy or it's not working or it's coming in slowly most people are going to go ahead and blame the website they're going to say something's broken with the website they're not going to say my i.s.p. is slowing them down right so it's very dangerous for those companies on the other side it's very interesting and pretty good analogy because i would say you know the internet websites broken up the spirit of it it will do that and you know i think the other thing that people don't realize it's really important for this conversation is that in the business of web sites if you will latency really matters down to a millisecond if a web page loads even the littlest bit slower all the data show that that really hard. it's a company and think i mean think about it think about
12:37 am
a payment processor for instance you pay for something with your credit card you're using pay pal right and it slows down and you get that little spinning wheel and then maybe even your transaction times out that will make you not want to use that company again richer right and odds are it's the i.s.p. who's doing that so in the i s p can pick winners or losers can grant incumbents who can afford faster access that faster access it's really bad for competition in this country. does not help in your situation but i want to ask you has the f.c.c. acted to protect net neutrality in the past and if so how so the f.c.c. has acted in the past to protect net neutrality in two thousand and ten you know they issued this open internet order that we've been operating under until about six months ago that basically set up a framework of net neutrality about six months ago the court a federal court in d.c. struck that down of course and this part gets a little bit in the legal way it's a just bear with me for a quick second here in two thousand and ten so so right now the internet is
12:38 am
classified we talked about this earlier is classified as an information service instead of a telecommunications service because it's an information service which is under something called section seven no six sorry this is a nerdy. because it's under that search the court said seven o six you can do what you're trying to do you can't protect net neutrality in the way you're trying to do it f.c.c. under this section of the law so we think that in order to protect net neutrality as the f.c.c. has tried to do before and according to statements coming out of the f.c.c. they apparently want to do again the legal authority only exists if they request if i it is a telecommunications service they. want to protect the net neutrality but we think there really is only one legal route to get there according to what this court said come now i want to ask you why is this debate just so contentious and isn't there some sort. third way that we might be able to satisfy
12:39 am
a network neutrality with out having all this flow back so i think it's so contentious i think it's actually a really great and important question i think it's so contentious because it really people really understand the internet they care about the internet people rely on the internet every day and not just for transactions but for basic human communication right and i think that that it really touches a nerve with people when they feel like their internet is being messed with and i think that's really important and i think you'll continue to see that throughout this debate as to your question about whether there's a third way i think there are alternative options that will help i think we can avoid this net neutrality debate we you know we're stuck with that one and we have to see it through but there are other things that can help i talked a little bit earlier about other ways to increase access to the internet and laying fiber having municipalities you know cities and towns lay fiber so that there are other ways to get on line so you're creating competition in the marketplace same thing with wireless giving more access in the wireless spectrum so let me just
12:40 am
talking a little bit wonky again so let me take a quick step back most places in america you've probably one choice to get on line in your house and it's probably comcast eighteen t. or verizon in some cities you might be lucky to have a second choice but that's incredibly rare across the country so these other things i'm talking about create that kind of competition so people can pick their own way to get on mine. that was julie samuels executive director of the engine research foundation. time now for a very quick break but stick around because one we return we're bringing you the best of the very best from this past week plus edward harrison and i are tackling your viewer feedback in our weekly accrued interest segment but before we go here are a look at some of your closing numbers of the bell stick around. balance
12:41 am
those things the security on one side and liberty and democracy on the other side we don't have any intention to egypt to touch me personally as long as he's peaceful as long as you call your mom dealing with your hands you know to knowing. you know killing people. or shotgun then it's up to you you beautiful whatever you want you express your feelings in the way you want but don't let anybody know you don't touch or burn a building or a police station or whatever in this case you have to the face of the sequences. if you drive people away from the dollar many people now it must be sitting there saying gosh if we have u.s. dollars and the u.s.
12:42 am
decides they don't like us they're going to put sanctions on us so people more and more people would say maybe i should use the u.s. dollar. welcome back now it's the end of the we. and that means it's time for our best of the best segment now we covered a lot of ground this week and let's start off with mr paul craig roberts now he argues that the powerful have more of a say in how our economy and our political system work and a lot of people would agree with him then we have eve smith who blasts private equity claims of job creation saying that it's a very dubious claim in her view and i got to agree with her now doug casey he talks about government inefficiency but wait till you hear how much inefficiency he sees a mere soofi argues that we need to forget about banks instead we should write down
12:43 am
some of the debt for underwater households in order to help the economy in the long run and chris martenson discusses the risks that still exist in the financial market crisis and what he thinks we should do about it but but we start off this week the best of the best with mr peter schiff the one and only now he discusses why he now uses big paper transactions in brooklyn you remember that he was not for him probably still isn't now the interesting bit is that he says that he doesn't really want the big point at all but what he actually wants of the dollars because he says dollars have a certain value and inside the u.s. dollars are legal tender dollars are what his employees need to pay their bills and what he needs to pay the rent not to mention dollars are what he needs to expunge his us tax liability check it out. i want to make it easier for people who own big coins to take something off the table and to turn some of their digital currency into real money gold and solar and by you know partnering up with with pay it makes
12:44 am
it very easy because the people with big points can use their bitcoins to pay but i don't get the big quotes i get dollars i see that really accepting big quine's pay is accepting big points and they're turning around and giving me dollars so my customers gets a pay with bitcoin but i get dollars which of course is what i need because i got to pay my rent i got to pay my salaries i got to pay all my other expenses and my taxes so i need dollars when i'm running a business in the united states i don't need because. the troops are the ones with the money and the ability to align themselves with us foreign policy for example wall street is their great looting mechanism. the military is scared of compliments . agribusiness monsanto all of those people the oil timber and mining the extractive industries and of course the israel lobby itself
12:45 am
these are the powerful interest groups that essentially determine the domestic and foreign economic policy and two scholars that you named they made the point in very strongly that. community interest groups and citizens have zero him put into the formation of policy. this is been confirmed by in other ways aaron recently the test was made to do let us send out to congressional offices and one asked for a meeting with representatives with some was with a collection of donors and the other asked for a meeting with a collection of community representatives well the first lot i got the responses they were all willing to meet with donors they were very interested to me where thirty community interest groups from their constituents. how many jobs do you keep
12:46 am
arms create if any. that's such a dubious argument it's actually offensive p. companies routinely cost fire people there's a thin slice of companies middle there's a thin slice around the three hundred three hundred fifty million in transaction size and below where the p. e. funds there actually is academic data that says they do invest and they do make operating improvements because those are companies that basically weren't professionally managed so they come at the size so there is a slice where you can make this client size slice that we can make this claim with there's virtue the problem is that's not where the bulk of the money in the industry is the bulk of the money is on the high end where they come in and they do financial engineering had a very aggressive headcount cuts very aggressive supplier squeezing. first of all most of the u.s. government serves no useful purpose. most of the u.s. government is and. on society and i think to start with we could abolish
12:47 am
about ninety percent of it quite frankly including most of the military i know the average american loves the military seems like it's the only part of the government that kind of works but actually the military the u.s. military is not protecting us there they're actually an immense danger to us by having combat troops not under different countries all these welfare programs should be abolished the post office should be privatized now it would be it is going to be quite. possible to cut the u.s. government by ninety percent and cut their taxes by about a month and so forth but it's not going to happen because of the deep state it's totally insinuated in society and african-americans are not recipients of income from the government so nothing's going to change until we have a genuine. catastrophic crisis. think about for a second the way a debt contracted works let's think about how so house worth one hundred thousand
12:48 am
dollars and you have a mortgage of eighty thousand dollars against it if house prices fall twenty thousand dollars then who takes a loss well anyone with a basic finance background knows that the homeowner takes out full loss they lose all of their equity before the creditor takes even a dollar of losses the point that we're making in the book is that who exactly are debtors debtors tend to be lower net worth lower income lower credit score individuals and they have a very high propensity to spend out of negative shocks meaning when their house prices fall twenty thousand dollars they cut back spending in a very strong way and when they cut back spending in this way in essential overwhelms the economy and that's exactly what you see in the data if you look at the shock to spending even before the financial crisis let's say in sept august and even early september two thousand and eight it was already of an unprecedented
12:49 am
proportion the cutback on autos the cutback on durable goods like refrigerators sewing machines these are just very dramatic pullbacks and spending and that's something that basically throws the entire in economy into a tailspin so the central argument that we're making is if you have a very narrow focus and all you think about is well we have to protect banks we have to protect banks you fail to recognize that actually for giving some of the dead while it may impose a short term loss on mortgages is. actually better in the long run for the overall economy what we don't like when we're looking across this landscape is we see everything that we would characterize as a risk or a pressure on the international financial system is now larger than it was in two thousand and eight and those pressures are things like derivatives are one hundred trillion higher the too big to fail banks are even larger sovereign debts are higher not lower we have all time highs now in consumer debt back on the on the books and what we don't have to support all of those things is that resumption of
12:50 am
world growth which our hypothesis is we are not going to see that with oil over one hundred dollars a barrel which we think is a permanent condition so that's the pressures we see building up resources aren't there in the cheap ways and amounts we need to have the growth that can sustain all of this additional debt and leverage that we're piling back into the system and that's a scenario i can't control that you can't nobody listening to this can what you can control is how exposed you are in case that scenario doesn't work out and that's where getting out of debt helps that's where investing in your homestead growing some of your own food if possible those sorts of things if you can do those those are really good at adding resilience into your personal landscape. that was the best of the best from this time now for our weekly accrued interest.
12:51 am
it's accrued interest time with mr edward harris and now every friday we put you the viewer into the driver's seat when you steer the show with your comments questions and concerns all sent to us throughout the week here twitter you tube and facebook let's dive right in first up we have mr zak eighty eight eight who writes pretty capitalism question our question are not this merger is it capitalism there is no such thing is good or bad or crony under capitalism if it makes money then it's considered correct either through hook or by crook you had idiot libertarians defending capitalism by naming monopolies crony i'm sorry but capitalism is a moral that goal is to make money pretty happy stuff so when you think capitalism immoral well maybe i don't know where it's coming from perhaps it is a moral because you know at the end of the day i think really will boils down to is that you know people do want to make money but let's put some parameters around this we have a quote here that i want to put up there is in the operation of
12:52 am
a market economy only one instance in which the proprietary class is not completely subject to the supremacy of the consumers monopoly prices are infringement of the sway of the consumers and that's from this for mieses who is an austrian economist i love that our free market economist who basically said that monopoly was an infringement on consumers we should have. if you think about this the question is how do companies get monopolies you know milton friedman would say in most cases it's government intervention that actually creates them without in the first place they're the ones who create the preconditions for the monopoly to exist so the question is regardless of whether. you believe government has created this monopoly what do you do once that monopoly comes into play and i think what you have to do is you have to free up competition freedom would say you know have free trade but in this case what we're talking about is a huge capital investment in internet technology in order to get competition and my
12:53 am
view is that you should definitely just have the government build you know a competing. route with all of the cable companies and then let it go up for free trade to anyone who wants to call so that pipe is open for free competition in anyone who wants to use that can do so in that way you can have more competition you know what i think is interesting about this we talked about this obviously before we get on television and you said you know my kneejerk reaction was like no capitalism isn't a moral it's many things and might not be moral but i don't know if it's a moral and you said it's more about market structure which i think sums up everything you just said and it's true market structure is so imperative and it's a it's something more than just a moratorium on holiday it has more implications i think and put it very well now our next question comes from the halo bend or tails zero ben she says why do fools
12:54 am
keep flocking to l.v. las vegas to lose their money clearly folks will never learn until they are destitute so add well never learn or is hello a band great. things are bubbling up in las vegas but you know what i heard a very interesting is that it's on the coast there was something in the new york times that said it's on the coasts where you're getting prices rising so high that it's almost better to read than to push like las vegas and phoenix are actually at the fore front of this the increase in house prices so they're going to another remark regarding the same episode comes from good ol cane i'm sorry if i butchered your handle for you to. but you write one of the best shows in a long time excellent guests and topics we want to say thank you when we really really appreciate that thank you very much mr cain talking about smith by the wood that episode that we had with her and i would agree she is one of the best guess
12:55 am
and i like the topics as well now talking about one of our favorite guests smith that's obviously what he's talking about now we want to move on and next we have a comment from nick hill about our guest david henderson he says quote mr anderson appears not to understand the concept of net neutrality has nothing to do it has nothing to do with all you can eat ban with packages it is about i.s.p. is deliberately downgrading performance to specific websites in order to leverage their physical monopoly of the cable industry now what do you think of this that is mr hill correct or is mr david henderson correct with thirty seconds but i want to hear what you get is that going back to or just you know you want to get rid of that little blip in there on the other side our guest earlier today was talking about yes when you see down we did service it's he was downgrading that service and you blame than the company the content provider and that caused to provide a loses money they're using their made up really to decide that it's certain that the ride is over others and that the child is all about well that's all for now but you can see also considered in today's show on you tube

it's time to stop talking politics and get down to business artie's katie pilgrim explores the asian shift. this storm comes the same week that we have the four hundred billion dollars gas still with gas problem sealed with china and that was an arabic kleinman as to what the potential for asian business holds for ross up but as far as process is concerned they have an abundance of natural resources and have the dumond and that's why a lot of people why getting free optimistic about the future relationship between russia and china. i heard about twenty fifty seven chinese company or high tech companies are ready just to move in and replace. the mint as if by just to name a few i mean it's amazing for all those next door clients so we start exploring new markets and restore the exploring a new possibilities for one of our clients will soon move the middle east for

a few years. moving to china in a few years no so as we know the pivot to asia is certainly in full swing the russian president vladimir putin made that ultimately. today we also have the vice president of china talking about the potential for the two countries as far as europe is because somewhere there is some concern that that business relationship be put on the sidelines because of this new flourishing relationship with china mr putin made it clear that the door to your remains firmly my friend and that was a welcomed sentiment by the european business leaders. for those who don't want to participate i think that will work create opportunities for companies who do want to be here so if companies leave now i think it will be very hard for them to reestablish themselves at some point in the future for the ones who do. the clear messages that. they're in the books they have the most opportunities we are every

childhood learning disorders despite that u.s. government is sticking with g.m. crops with and months when i get it through his campaign and told us that there are more myths than facts out of regarding the g.m. alls. it's what the scientists have learned us about that genetically modified foods will increase allergies that they're going to be less nutritious and they could possibly or very likely contain toxins that can make us feel so the idea that we actually need the most to feed the world is completely false we actually have enough grassland in the united states to pasture and raise one hundred percent grass fed beef and produce even more grass fed beef that we're producing the case of rave factory farm beef that is all raised on genetically modified corn and soy so you know this feed the world argument is not accurate or in in the slightest and the american biotech companies are trying hard to get into the european market

but for now most ease staves have bands of the crops and all food must be labeled if it contains engineered products e.u. rules also to mid member nations to a slab is so called g.m. over free zones and the regulations have kept most of it out except for animals raised on modified crops but healthy food as a kid rub it to fat a caricature is pessimistic about the future he believes europe will eventually give in to u.s. trade negotiators who won g.m.o. restrictions lifted on the continent. in europe. if you look at the human food stuffs there is a requirement to label them as g m o's if they contain more than point nine percent in the united states of america what's rather appalling is that the consumer does not have that informed choice because of the fact that mandatory labeling has not been introduced and in the number of states where where it has

monsanto controls eighty percent of g.m. corn and ninety three percent of the sawyer america the u.s. remains one of the only industrialized countries in the world that doesn't even require labeling of g.m. owes in large part due to an insane lobbying effort on behalf of the ag the in the in the corporatocracy in which we live monsanto's managed to infiltrate nearly every government agency that regulates the production distribution and oversight of essentially making the company virtually a new one in the continuous string of lawsuits by farmers and victims of a toxic pesticides. the. look at some of the stories making global headlines is coming your way at the shop week. there's a show we. are the seed you're. the you're part of the there's

more news coming your way on our international now with a recent credit upgrade that seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel for the struggling greek economy but safe on those little change for the authority stricken greek people unemployment remains the highest in europe with more than half the country's youth out of work some are now fleeing the cities and says of a better life only to discover things aren't any brighter in the countryside as more we not cost reports. they say desperate times call for desperate measures and for many young greeks that was the case when they were forced to return to the countryside at the height of the economic crisis looking for a cheaper and better quality of life but the high taxes rampant unemployment and

lack of resources have touched every single area in greece not just the cities leaving many and the dead and. i left the village five years ago i tried to work in the city at various companies but the quality of life there is not the same i returned and try to cultivate crops but unfortunately exploitation of lands offers very little money for a young person cannot have a family and make ends meet like this. young man is lives in the village of out of money the he travels back and forth to the city trying to make a living he is one of the few left here most people you encounter are much older like you are yes most of his children have also left. village comprises seventy families which is around four hundred people half of the population left most of the people here old young people have moved to the cities or abroad in search of a better life and those who stay behind will end up looking for something better venture lee the problem is that at the moment very few know where to look for that

british government's been accused of exaggerating the country's energy potential after a report revealed there's no point fracking for shale gas in southern england the findings indicate that even the supposedly massive oil reserves in the region will be hard to recover it's more bad news for the u.k. economy which is rapidly running out of fossil fuels a recent study suggests london should urgently turn to alternative energy or become fully dependent on imports as part of worker reports. according to the global sustainability institute you can set your watch to it in just five years time person will have run out of oil coal and gas a new report shows that if it consumes energy at the rate it did in two thousand and ten well the u.k. has five point two years of oil four and a half years of coal and just three years of gas left and that's if scotland doesn't vote to leave the union later this year taking its north sea oil with it
1:21 am
italy has just over one year of oil and less than a year of gas and coal reserves while france which relies predominantly on nuclear energy has less than a year's reserves of oil gas and coal elsewhere in the world kuwait has a stash of over seven hundred years of black gold while qatar boasts over a millennium norway has almost five hundred years and russia has just over a century's worth of natural gas one of the report's conclusions is that europe needs to develop renewable energy such as wind and solar power well the energy maps come less than a month off to the u.k.'s committee or national security said that the government's energy plans were robust enough one thing that the news is likely to fuel is westminster's dash for shale gas ministers are hoping that hydraulic fracturing will lead to greater energy independence but that's not likely to placate

environmentalists who claim that the process is dangerous probably boyko r.c. . we spoke with the author of the report and dr alan jones from the u.k.'s and here ruskin university he believes europe is headed for an energy crisis the likelihood is gas prices in europe will increase dramatically in the short term. alternative supplies can be found and where those alternative supplies come from there's a big question about whether the infrastructure is in place to be able to supply those so what we're likely to see is an increased. price of dance in europe for some very serious situations around tricity generation heating and all the other things that we use gas for in europe so we will see significant impacts on all i literally market or heating markets. and here's a look at some other news stories from across the world america has cut millions of

1:24 am
around the world have once again raised concerns over guantanamo bay dozens of protests were held as part of a global day of action to close the military prison and as it were looking out was the one in new york. in the u.s. a day of action to shut down guantanamo and put an end to indefinite detention activists are coming out on to the streets in new york city here in times square as well as washington d.c. addressing the white house saying the time has come to close down this controversial prison camp i've said repeatedly that i intend to close guantanamo and i will follow through on that trial total will be closed no later than one year from now when i was elected in two thousand and eight i said we need to close guantanamo i continue to believe that we've got to close guantanamo this needs to be the year congress lifts the remaining restrictions on the twenty transfers and we closed the prison at guantanamo bay yet of course today it still remains open

and there are a hundred fifty four men who remain detained seventy seven of them more than half have been approved to leave by every government agency every u.s. government agency with a stake in these detentions has determined unanimously that those people do not need to be. more than twelve years of this camp's existence over seven hundred detainees were held at this present many of them awaiting to be charged four years on and not knowing what the future will hold but since the bush administration we have serially violated our own constitution so the united states is this is filling a very dramatically. kuantan m o is one very crucial important instance of the failure last time the world's attention was really brought back to guantanamo was one of mass hunger strike took place last year and the world was forced to address the issue yet again and to hold us accountable for the events unraveling at
1:26 am
guantanamo and even though the obama administration's has decided to not release any more numbers on the number of detainees currently being force fed we do know that those numbers are in at least a couple dozen people and despite the fact that officials are calling this long term non really just fasting certainly this continues to be a major concern for human rights groups and organizations prisoners and twenty thirteen took a courageous mass action a political action of going on hunger strike this did get the attention of washington because. they were on the verge of having more deaths on their hands moving forward these optimists are saying the plan is to continue to organize for the cause of having one ton of moby shut down but even if eventually that day does calm they say enough of a state has been already created on america's image to remain there for a decisive artsy new york technology update is coming up next here on our

international but if you're watching from the u.k. it's just going away. recently a new laws passed in russia that makes bloggers as more than three thousand viewers per day become part of the nation's mass media this is a big deal because they will have to meet a lot of new high standards for one thing anybody goes out the door and authors will have to sign their real life name to their blogs and they cannot promote various breeds of what some would call extremist ideas or vole garrity there are reasons that such a law came into existence russians really do hate swearing in the media believe me have gotten a few youtube messages about it and many people believe that a certain world hyper power manipulates the russian internet with fake and paid accounts for example at the start of the korean conflict post from a daughter of an officer with
1:28 am
a male name became legendary evidence of this foreign meddling but just because there are reasons for such a law does not make it a good idea this punishes the whole russian internet for the actions of a tiny minority and having a limit of three thousand viewers per day is so small that even blogs about knitting will become mass media and worst of all i am going to be fined for swearing repeatedly because i am not going to stop hacked the reason i like living in russia is because in a politically correct world at least for now we can call a spade a spade this country and i'm not backing down darn it but that's just my opinion.

genes coded messages that tell cells how to behave mutations in certain genes can cause them to divide uncontrollably healthy cells into cancerous ones and new ways of treating cancer can never come soon enough set up in moscow in one thousand nine hundred fifty one the nicholai blockin cancer research center is the largest such medical institution in europe and second in the world the center employs around four thousand five hundred people and has over one thousand two hundred beds for patients it's also conduct leading edge experimental research in diagnosing treating and preventing all types of malignant and systematic diseases of which there are over two hundred. there are only a few treatment methods she says you can count them on one hand or. firstly there's surgical removal of the tumor and secondly there's radiotherapy but i wouldn't that is without removing the tumor or radiotherapy and then after the removal of the
1:35 am
tumor. and thirdly there's systemic treatment. in addition to the staple three approaches different techniques are being tried out biological therapies used vaccines or bacteria. the body's immune system to fight cancer cells and reduce the side effects of more aggressive treatments tests have also been conducted using nano five achieves to draw away from areas potentially opening up new treatments opportunities and the first concrete evidence of consistency might provide a way of destroying the. bill we're going to show the law by little or biology has given us an understanding of the specific genes and their derivative proteins would play a vital role in the formation of tumor cells actually making a song malignant and therefore different from a regular so. you reach a new mile once we know these genes and understand how other proteins work. when we

can start developing targeted medicines for them at their word and it costs. hundreds for sets of between buying for their abuse six for massachusetts under snow in two thousand and eleven with the russian side investing forty seven point two five million dollars. recently opened an r. and d. sense of the slav a techno park in moscow the focus of the company's activities will be perfect in this new targeted cancer treatment. but our company scientists are working on several in-house projects aimed at developing the next generation of the innovative drug group what we call a cure and it's in the what's on the at the end of the i'm up here in the gutter you these are targeted programmable cancer drugs for the treatment of various types of cancer and quite excusably like. a like one hundred nano meta trojan
1:37 am
horses because if they repeat it payload in a protective biocompatible. which both controls the release in the midst of and protects it from the body's immune system. once injected the cure is clear through the full steam and to the beach. targets their size means that they can exploit the gap between the cells in the choose good vessels which is larger when compared to healthy vessels special like molecules covering the surface if you cure in bind to the cancer cells and penetrate through the cells once inside the toxic payload is released destroying the cell from within. producing the a curing is relatively simple polyethylene glycol used to form the outer shell is dissolved in the medication. can be used to transport various medical payloads but the company's most promising a cure and is bind fourteen which uses the tried and tested and teach you much old docetaxel. assembles into nano shells around the drug but what makes bind
1:38 am
fourteen really stand out from all the no medications other like runs on the surface these molecules actively targets the proteins found in cancer cells a new blood vessels in this combination of active and passive targeting means that the toxicity of medication can be increased while the juicing the risk to surrounding healthy tissues potentially lessening some of the serious side effects associated with other types of chemotherapy the particles have been produced the one hundred nine and a curious are separated from the rest of the mixture this is the room size for distribution within the body and penetration of the chuma was effectively isn't the only consideration. on your. thought the technology behind any new drug needs to be scalable. you must be able to produce grams or even kilograms of the drug that's just as well as you can produce it in milligrams really thick now and what makes the blind technology so efficient now is the fact that it is so easily
1:39 am
scalable so if they're curious or too small they would be filtered out by the kidney. and they may not reach the tumor so the solution is to ensure they within the one hundred not only to range and all. so the check the rate the medication is released. preclinical studies have shown that bind fourteen significantly increases the concentration of docetaxel. with no increase in toxicity bind fourteen is now undergoing stage two clinical trials in the us and russia this will determine the optimum dosage under stress is affected against specific types of cancer targets and therapist represents the future of cancer treatment. affected by fourteen along with his ability to be produced means that we may soon have another weapon in the fight against cancer.
1:40 am
that's just the end of the first half join us for more technology after the break. if wishes were commissioners we'd all be fed their voices royal reserves we'd all be that shakes it wishes were stacks of money dollars or we'd all be london blowing fat cats. if you drive people away from the dollar many people now it must be sitting there saying gosh if we have u.s. dollars and the us decides they don't like us they're going to put sanctions on us so people more and more people will say maybe i should use the u.s. dollar.

1:44 am
over the centuries might just be the next stage. of my strengths in my weekly joy i was determined not to be outdone by my much mates so i decided to show off my new three d. printing complete with. the theory being. three d. . which is a spin off from. the technology behind. anything else on the
1:45 am
market. develops and. doesn't require heating elements using three d. pens making it safer for everyone. from a special substance that solidifies when subjected to ultraviolet light. to develop the right composition. because it's very important to make the substances. just leak out same time make it possible to develop polymers with different characteristics for example of polymer with elastic properties which is impossible . because afterward solidifies it simply becomes plastic again. we set up a little test to see how oddly would hold up against some of the competition we asked our to design to put the production version of the tomsk pen through its paces maxime proof also an r.t. designer was put in charge of the world's first three d.
1:46 am
pen images three doodler finally we invited anya from smidgen of design to try to the chinese ya three d. which is based on the same plastic extrusion principle as its american cousin. michael my artistic goal is to draw fish for my kids because this thing has obviously been created with children in mind. three to one seats design stage is complete we make a model we often use a three d. printer to create a prototype problem and say let's see if we can use this pen to do the say it's definitely mainly for kids but if i guess even adults might find it interesting once they get the hang of it. it's interesting yeah. i doubt you will find any practical use for it i reckon you could use it around the house for interior design for making toy figures that like you could make ornaments people was like some sort of this is fashion accessories like
1:47 am
a bright i've come to the conclusion that you need to draw a frame first and then attach everything else to it or else what doesn't work any other way for me without registering at least. like what. i hear from head sections for my future wife separator. now i'm trying to make it three dimensional. i've made a human like toy man but he won't stand up by himself so i'm trying to make him stand just. draw him a base maybe a store more with the but it is definitely a meditative quality about this. has fallen off line. and won't work so. someone kept breaking for me to last time he gets overheated his ear is easier to use than the chinese one. that light is too hard on the eyes we'll look at it but i've got used to that but it's not as rubbery
1:48 am
as you as you say you seem to be doing really well i haven't really got the knack of it yet but when you spoke. so this is what i made a really weird looking fish whale thing but i've done it by much hang it on the wall he approaches. created quite a shapeless saying. this isn't exactly what i had in mind but it's not like a proper looking prototype that is more or less what it is finally made a stand for his or. distilling to make his head. this hobby would definitely be exciting for children and their parents. it's something that they can do together there's. but it does require some skills these if i was a five year old i would be jumping with joy and asking my parents to buy me all the columns rational it's quite fascinating and i wanted to create something that could be produced by three d. printer but it's not very accurate i believe this plan has a lot of potential provided some improvements i might sometimes it gets dark so you
1:49 am
end up breaking some parts off making them over again. the one that has the light uses some kind of liquid a little bit like you think. the other one that shoots out of sort of plastic is much more difficult to use that was my experience i think because you're right i like the chinese bronze with the plastics because it has a fairly even for life ticker and it sets. the stage for twenty first century plasticine. proved to be a massive hits among my classmates with everyone wanting to swap their pencils for the three d. pen and before long they were busy bringing their ideas to life in. so maybe soon instead of sticking to the drawings on the fridge this week putting three d. must pieces on the mantel piece. at the risk of stating the obvious which is pretty big the country's extensive web

one hundred years before the marks left by tracks and two hundred to spare. our vehicle doesn't cause this damage to the environment it was for such a hold of a vehicle. shaman can really move. from a to call. can reach speeds of up to seventy four kilometers an hour the food legal weight over six meters long just under three meters high and you put five meters wide it has a wheel base of almost two hundred forty five centimeters. of cargo one hundred forty six horsepower diesel engine is at the heart of a machine which is fed by a two hundred sixty to fuel. the range of about one thousand three hundred kilometers the shaman can scale inclines with a forty five degree. of gravity and custom designed low pressure its highest. from when the welding sparks fly to final testing it's currently takes up to last
